I was in Troy,Al that morning, with a load of plastic pipe. Somebody had screwed up, I was supposed to be in Opp,Al for my first drop instead of the main store in Troy. I was waiting on them to decide if they wanted it there or in Opp, sitting in the truck listening to the syndicated out of Charlotte NC John boy and Billy show when just before they were supposed to go off the first plane hit. They stayed on a long time after the second plane hit, can’t remember how long but probably over an hour past their show time. I had to go to Opp to get that first drop off, I stopped at a small country store for a cake and a drink, the lady inside was glued to the radio, visibly shaken. Went on and got the first drop unloaded, and headed up US 84 to US45 to Jackson,MS to unload the rest. Noticed I needed some fuel... The damn profiteers were running the price up! Everywhere the price of gas and diesel went over $5.00 a gallon. Finally found a fuel stop that hadn’t raised their prices yet, so I filled up. Went on to Jackson and got that last drop off, then went to a truck stop to get something to eat. I still hadn’t seen a TV all day, there was a crowd of drivers surrounding the one that was on. I got my sandwich and stopped to watch for a minute. I was glad I hadn’t eaten yet, surely I would have lost it. The rest of the day is a blur. I don’t think I even loaded back that week, everybody was closed, not knowing what to expect next. It was odd, no planes in the sky’s. One of those days you will always remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard the news.
